Robbie Ray (head) struck out 11 while allowing two runs over 4 2/3 innings in a rehab start with High-A Visalia on Thursday.

That will work. Ray looks to be fine physically after leaving a start late last month when he was struck in the head with a line drive, and it looks like he did a fine job knocking the rust off Thursday. He should soon officially be cleared to rejoin the Diamondbacks' rotation next week.

Robbie Ray (concussion) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Visalia on Thursday.

Ray got through a 50-pitch simulated game over the weekend with no issues and the Diamondbacks considered re-inserting him right into their rotation. However, they ultimately decided that one rehab start would do him some good. Ray has been out all of August after being hit in the head with a line drive. He'll be back next week assuming Thursday's outing goes well.
Aug 14 - 7:00 PM

Robbie Ray (concussion) threw 45-50 pitches during a simulated game Saturday at the Diamondbacks' spring training facility in Scottsdale.

Ray threw four innings Saturday and was able to use his full repertoire. "He looked exactly like Robbie Ray," said manager Torey Lovullo. The next step for Ray will likely be a short rehab assignment. The left-hander suffered a concussion when he was struck by a line drive last month but appears to be on the mend.
Aug 12 - 6:43 PM

Robbie Ray (concussion) is expected to pitch in a simulated game on Saturday.

That's assuming Ray isn't too fatigued from his latest bullpen session. Ray has made a quick recovery from a concussion he suffered on a screaming line drive late last month. The left-hander's 11.45 K/9 this season is fourth-highest in the majors behind Chris Sale, Corey Kluber and Max Scherzer.
Aug 10 - 7:33 PM

Robbie Ray (concussion) was able to play catch on Tuesday, one day after throwing 28 pitches in a bullpen session.

Ray is progressing nicely, as he works in the concussion protocol. Manager Torey Lovullo said Anthony Banda will take Ray's turn in the rotation on Thursday against the Dodgers.
Aug 9 - 2:16 AM

Robbie Ray (concussion) was slated to throw a bullpen session Monday.

Ray had already played catch a couple times and was cleared to test things from the bump. He's expected to need a simulated game and/or at least one rehab start before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation. "We want to get him through the first bullpen and then come up with a game plan," manager Torey Lovullo said.
Aug 8 - 8:36 AM

Diamondbacks placed LHP Robbie Ray on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Silvino Bracho was called up from Triple-A to take his roster spot. Ray was struck by a 108 mph line drive in a scary scene Friday against the Cardinals. He returned to the ballpark after a brief stint in the hospital last night, which is obviously an encouraging sign. There's no timetable for his return.
Jul 29 - 5:02 PM

The CT scan on Diamondbacks' left-hander Robbie Ray came back normal on Friday night.

The left-hander was removed from Friday's start after he was drilled in the head by a line drive off the bat of Luke Voit. He was discharged from the hospital and returned to the ballpark to shower afterwards. He will remain in the concussion protocol, but it appears as though he was able to avoid any serious injury in what looked to be a very scary situation.
Jul 29 - 12:19 AM

Robbie Ray was forced to leave Friday's game against the Cardinals after taking a Luke Voit line drive off of his head.

Ray appeared to remain conscious during the ordeal. He was moved to a sitting position before being loaded onto a cart to be driven off the field. He was also able to wave to the crowd on his way out. He'll head for further evaluation. Expect an update on his status from the Diamondbacks later in the evening.
Jul 28 - 8:48 PM

Robbie Ray surrendered five runs (four earned) on six hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

Ray got off to an awful start in this one, coughing up a leadoff home run to Brian Goodwin to open the game. Three more runs would come home after that shot, leaving the Diamondbacks in a 4-0 hole before they even had a chance to bat. He settled in after that, but the damage had already been done. Ray finished up his outing with a modest four strikeouts and two walks. Up next on the docket as he tries to shake it off, a road showdown with the Cardinals. He will bring a 3.15 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 149/57 K/BB ratio (19 starts) into that contest.
Jul 23 - 8:33 PM

Robbie Ray held the Reds to two runs over six innings in a win Tuesday.

The game was noteworthy for the fact it was nondescript -- no outlandish strikeout totals, no multi-homer meltdown, nothing. Just six very good innings from a guy who's developed into a terrific pitcher in 2017. Ray allowed just four hits, including a home run, while walking three over his six innings. The win improved him to 9-4 with a 2.97 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 145/55 K/BB ratio over 18 starts. A tough test is on deck when the D'backs take on the Nationals on Sunday.
Jul 19 - 1:33 AM

Robbie Ray struck out a career-high-tying 13 while allowing one run over six innings and taking a no-decision in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Dodgers.

Ray was not perfect in this one -- he twice left the bases loaded -- but his stuff was spectacular. Sometimes too spectacular. He walked four in the outing. The lone run to score on his watch came on a solo home run by Logan Forsythe in the fifth inning. Ray heads into the All-Star break the owner of a 2.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 141/52 K/BB ratio in 106 innings (17 starts). He still has his occasional issues with control, but the strikeout rate is spectacular and this is the kind of season which his ability has always hinted toward.
Jul 7 - 1:21 AM

Robbie Ray gave up four runs over six innings and struck out nine Friday in a loss to the Rockies.

Even Ray's bad outings this year haven't been particularly bad; he still hasn't given up more than five runs in any of his 16 stats. It is somewhat concerning that he's walked 17 batters in his last four starts (he totaled 31 in his first 12), but it doesn't seem likely that he'll suddenly start getting hit hard with regularity.
Jul 1 - 1:30 AM

Robbie Ray allowed just two earned runs while scattering six hits over 6 1/3 innings in Saturday's victory against Philadelphia.

Ray improved to 8-3 while posting his sixth quality start over his past seven outings. He hasn't lost since May 9 against the Tigers, a span of nine starts. It's a bit concerning that his walks are way up lately and his strikeouts have been down, but he is still winning on a regular basis.
